Mount Baker Walk

With Cathy & Jake Jaramillo

Among Seattle stairs, the Dose Terrace steps are one of the classics. This stairway features an inlaid brass sign at the top, an ornate wedding cake-like balcony near the bottom and fantastic views across Lake Washington. This Seattle stairway walk starts with a flourish, but it continues on a series of high notes, carrying into beautiful Colman Park before turning into the residential neighborhood. There you'll encounter more cool stairways, and scenic and historical highlights at every turn: Bradner Gardens Park; the East Portal Viewpoint; and magnificent Mount Baker Ridge Viewpoint.

2.4 miles, 1.5 hours; 569 steps down, 372 up

Start: At the top of the Dose Terrace stairway, on S Dose Terrace one block east of 34th Avenue S

    Another excellent FF walk! A fascinating neighborhood with breathtaking views to the east and west. Our guides are experts on the history and architecture of the area, so we had many great mini-lectures all along the way.

    I have never been there. Could you be more specific about where to meet? Where should I park? By the beach or on the other side of the park on a side street?

      At the top of the Dose Terrace stairway, on S Dose Terrace one block east of 34th Avenue S. Does Terrace is S Walker street west of 31st. It's at the top of the stairs so I'd suggest you approach from Rainier valley side. Any street south of I-90.
